Boys Town National Research Hospital, Residential Treatment Center

Omaha, Nebraska

The residential treatment center was designed for children in grades K-12 who have suffered from trauma, neglect or abuse. Space and program provisions include 17 double-occupant youth bedrooms, shared living rooms, dining facilities, three classrooms, library, community gathering room, gymnasium, outdoor activity area, laundry, restrooms, counseling and medical services, administrative spaces and reception and lobby spaces.

In 2017, a second, identical residential treatment center opened next to the original, doubling Boys Town’s capacity to serve troubled or traumatized youth.
